Messi Harder To Defend Than Ronaldo, Says Silva

Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has revealed that he prefers to defend against Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi when comparing the two superstars ahead of his side's Champions League last 16 clash with Real Madrid on February 14.
Silva, the club captain of PSG, has risked provoking Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo with his comments ahead of their Champions League encounter by wading into football's eternal debate and suggesting Messi is the harder player to play against.
"The small difference is that Lionel Messi, with the ball one on one, even two, it's difficult to stop him," the Brazilian centre-back told FootMercato.

"Cristiano Ronaldo, although it's not easy, one player can mark and another double up behind for extra security, because they are players who can do incredible things, like Neymar for example."
